MORNING: STONEHENGE AND ENVIRONS

The morning starts with a visit to Durrington Walls and Woodhenge, home to the 'Stonehenge Builder's' village and the most convincing evidence for human sacrifice. We then travel a short distance to Stonehenge. We enjoy a leisurely paced walk through the landscape immediately surrounding Stonehenge, visiting the Stonehenge Cursus, Bronze Age burial mounds and walk along the Stonehenge Avenue. We complete our morning at Stonehenge with a guided walk around the stone circle, our archaeologists bringing to life this enigmatic, ancient and mysterious monument.

 

 

MID-DAY: SALISBURY CATHEDRAL

At mid-day we arrive at the beautiful Medieval city of Salisbury. Here we allow our guests aprox 2 hours to enjoy the centre of this city, famous for it's cathedral.

 We also use this opportunity for our guests to have lunch.

 Admission is included for Salisbury Cathedral.

AFTERNOON: AVEBURY AND ENVIRONS

The Afternoon is spent at the Avebury World Heritage Landscape. We visit Silbury Hill, the largest man-made hill in prehistoric Europe. We enter the 5500 year old burial chamber of West Kennet Long Barrow, entering a sacred space originally reserved only for ritual specialists and the dead.

We finish by visiting the largest stone circle in Europe at Avebury, with its beautiful medieval village situated inside. As John Aubrey in the 1600's notes [Avebury]..."does as much exceed in greatness the so renowned Stonehenge as a Cathedral doeth a parish church."

An Archaeologist Shares His Knowledge
KrisH1336
, Jul 2019
Tom was an amazing guide and thoroughly explained the history of Stonehenge and Avebury. On the ride to the sites, he shared his wealth of knowledge about the history of the area and made sure the tour group had a good base understanding before we reached our destination. While viewing the site, he continued to explain about how the site was excavated, and took us to specific vantage sites for viewing opportunities. He was engaging and knowledgeable, and I highly recommend the tour.
